EMMERSON Boyce admitted Wigan Athletic simply “weren’t good enough” against bogey-side Fulham.
Latics started slowly and never got to grips with the Cottagers, who won at the DW for the second successive season and extended their unbeaten record in this fixture to 12 matches.
The second-half introduction of Ryo Miyaichi and Callum McManaman did at least lead to a rally, but Arouna Kone’s late goal was scant consolation.
And Boyce readily acknowledges that no one’s place in the side can be considered secure.
“The gaffer told us after the game that everyone’s place is up for grabs, because at the end of the day we weren’t good enough,” Boyce said.
“The lads who did start have to hold our hands up – we didn’t really get going in the first half.
“It’s going to be a hard week for us now, because everyone is fighting for their place, and the two lads who came on at the end did very well.”
